Kid Friendly

Driggs | Mar 2, 2002 08:03 AM

I would love to hear any suggestions for places that are kid friendly but are not painful to the adults (no hard rock cafe, no Mcdonalds). I mean the food (although it seems to be that the great ethnic unifier is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches) as well as the attitude/atmosphere. Those with kids know what I mean. A partial checklist
High chairs
Enough background noise to drown out the squeals and fights
Permissive attitude (actual exchange at Indian restaurant: ME: "do you have high chairs" WAITER: "we do not serve children" ME: "thats ok, im a vegetarian, havent eaten them for years" WAITER (Blank stare): "Please go elsewhere")
Bathrooms
Friendly staff

Some of the places I suggest:
Thailand restaurant (ChinaTown)
Odeon (Tribeca)
Diner (Williamsburg)
Yemen Cafe (Atlantic Ave)
Waterfall (Atlantic Ave)
Iron Chef (Brooklyn Heights)
Grimaldis (Brooklyn Heights)
